The overall objective of the Turbine Engine Hot Section Technology Combustion Project is to develop and verify improved and more accurate analysis methods for increasing the ability to design with confidence the combustion system for advanced aircraft turbine engines. The analysis methods developed will be generically applicable to combustion systems and not restricted to one specific engine or manufacturer. This project's approach was to first assess and evaluate existing combustor aerothermal analysis models by means of a contracted effort initiated during FY 1982. This evaluation effort has assessed and quantified known models' strengths and deficiencies. During FY 1984 the Aerothermal Modeling Program, Phase 2 will be initiated, which is expected to have contracted model development efforts in the areas of improved numerical methods for turbulent viscous flows, flow interactions, and fuel spray flow foekd interactions. A Phase 3 effort is planned to address remaining model deficiencies. The primary inhouse effort in this area will be the determination of high pressure flame radiation characteristics in a full annular combustor. This experiment will be conducted in the NASA LeRC High Pressure Facility with the results compiled into a comprehensive flame radiation and liner heat flux model.
